Red, Pink, Green & White
#23 - Country Farm
This block should be renamed "Goldilocks" and it nearly did me in. Here's the first version.
Too wishy-washy. I didn't like how the yellow points just melted into the background and really all you see is a bright red hourglass. But it wasn't a total waste of time, I guess. It helped me decide on red star points for sure.
Here's the second version.
Too bright. This time I was smart enough to not assemble the entire thing. Good thing, too. I just wasn't feelin' the love for the pink/yellow hourglass.
Aah. Juuuuuuuust right. :)
#28 - Four Winds
I was a little nervous about this one - with 64 pieces (the largest being 3/4" finished) I didn't want to have to remake it because just because I didn't like the colors. But I knew right away that the pinwheel in the middle needed to be red and the background would be white. So I just gambled on the pink & green and ... voila!
I'm really happy with this one too.
Ok, I've had quite a few requests lately to see a "group shot" of my blocks so here you go. :)
What does it all measure up to?
According to my ruler, 2 and 3/4" of pure Farmer's Wifey, Flower Sugary goodness! ;)
